The Navy awarded four lots of contracts totaling over $1.7 billion for repair, maintenance and modernization requirements work on non-nuclear surface vessels based or visiting the San Diego Navy port.
Delivery orders will be competitively awarded under each contract Lot, with competition among these groups of winners.
The first lot covers Epsilon Systems Solutions, Inc.; BAE Systems’ San Diego Ship Repair; East Coast Repair and Fabrication; Titan Acquisition Holdings’ Continental Maritime San Diego; Pacific Ship Repair and Fabrication Inc.; and General Dynamics’ [GD] National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) as winners of a firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple award contract (MAC) with a combined ceiling of $655 million. Lot 1 focuses on complex repair, maintenance and modernization requirements for Ticonderoga-class cruisers and Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, collectively called surface combatants, homeported in or visiting San Diego.
All four MACs have an estimated ordering period of five years, with an expected completion date of November 2026. The contract announcement said all of the work consists of Chief of Naval Operations-scheduled docking and non-docking, continuous maintenance and emergent maintenance availabilities of surface combatant class ships to be performed in the San Diego port.
The Lot 2 MAC contract covers the same companies and type of work at Lot 1, but will have deliveries orders for amphibious class ships like America-class (LHA) and Wasp-class amphibious assault ships (LHA, LHD); San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ships (LPD); and the Whidbey Island-class and Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ships (LSD). This has a combined ceiling of $539 million.
DoD said the Lot 1 and 2 MACs were competitively procured with seven offers received, but did not disclose the sole losing competitor.
Lots 3 and 4 differ by having some differences in MAC winner groups and the work focusing on non-complex repair, maintenance and modernization requirements for both groups of surface vessels compared to complex work in the first two lots.
The Lots 3 and 4 MAC winning group includes Epsilon Systems Epsilon Systems Solutions Inc.; East Coast Repair and Fabrication; Pacific Ship Repair and Fabrication Inc.; Colonna’s Shipyard West LLC;; Gulf Copper Ship Repair; Integrated Marine Services Inc.; Propulsion Controls Engineering; Southcoast Welding & Manufacturing; and Advanced Integrated Technologies LLC.
Lot 3 has a combined ceiling of $209 million in non-complex maintenance work for CG and DDG class ships in San Diego while Lot 4 has a combined ceiling of $335 million for non-complex work for the amphibious vessels.
The announcement said the Lot 3 and 4 contracts were small business set asides with these nine offers received.
